JAMES A. HOYT,
The Proposed Constitutiona:
We do not think that the propej
attention has been given to thi:
matter by the State press. Th<
full text of the proposed amend
ment is appended below :
"That Section 5, Article X, (o
the Constitution) be amended so as
to read as follows:.
"Sacrros 5. The Boards of Coun
ty Commissioners of the severa:
Counties shall levy an annual tax o:
not less than two mills on the do)
lar upon all the taxable property ii
their respective Counties, whic]
levy shall not be increased unless
byspecial enactment of the Genera
Assembly, for the support of pu.bli<
schools in their respective Counties
which tax shall be collected at th<
same time and by the same officers
as the other taxes for the same year
and shall be held in the Count;
Treasnries of the respective Conn
ties, and paid out exclusively fo:
the support of public schools as
provided by law. There shall b4
assessed on all taxable polls in the
State an annual tax of one dollai
on each poll, the proceeds of whici
tax shall be applied solely to edu.
cational purposes: PinovnED, Thal
no person shall ever be deprived o),
the right of suffrage for the non-pay
mnent of said tax. No other poll oi
capitation tax shall be levied in the
State, nor shall the amount assessed
on each poll exceed the limits givei
in this Section. The .school tax
shall be distributed among the sev
eral school districts of the Counties,
in proportionT to the respective num
her of pupils attending the publi(
schools. No religious sect or sects
shall have exclusive right to, ori
control of, any part of the school
funds of the State, nor shall secta
rian principles be taught in the
That is the proposed amendment,
and we are free to say it is a good
one, with one very important excep
tion-we allude to the provision
which says, "No person shall ever
be deprived of the right of suffrage
for the non-payment of the said
That proviso is really not a legiti
mate part of the amendment. but is
separate and distinct from it, mak
ing two amendments to be voted
on as one, which is in violation of
Art. XV, Sec. 2, of the Constitution.
We do not propose, however, to
discuss the matter upon Constitu
tional grounds, but upon the merits
of the case. We believe that a man
who does not pay One Dollar a
year to the supp)ort of the govern.
ment should not be permitted to
vote. Representation without tax
ation is just as great a wrong as
Taxation without representation.
The payment of poll tax should be
the test of citizenship. And there
is no more effectual way of collect
ing this tax than by placing before
every man the alternative-no poll
tax, no vote. There are States in
which this is the case. It ought
public schools can be submitted to
the people again, and ought to be.
It is a good thing. But leave that
part containing the proviso an open
question. It may be desired at
some future day to amend the Con
stitution in a way precisely opposite
to that contemplated by that pro

who feel any interest in the subject

Resolution proposing the Amend
ment was approved March 26, 1875.
The Last Agony.
In conformity with the orders from
the War Department the troops left
the State House the 10th instant, at
In the afternoon Hampton sent a
written request to Chamberlain for the
Executive Chamber, with the records
and papers belonging to the office.
Chamberlain replied that he would
comply with the request the next day
at 12. At the appointed time Gov.
Hampton's private secretary called at
the Executive Chamber, met the pri
vate secretary of Chamberlain, and the
transfer took place.
THE LAST GASP OF RADICALISM.
The following is Chamberlain's ad
To the Republicans of South Caro
By your choice I was made Gover
nor of this State in 1874. At the
r election on the seventh of November
r last I was again by your votes elected
to the same office. My title to the
office, upon every legal and moral
- ground, is to-day clear and perfect.
- By the recent decision and action of
the President of the United States, I
find myself unable longer to maintain
my official rights, with the prospect of
final success, and I hereby announce
to you, that I am unwilling to prolong
a struggle. which can only bring fur

In announcing this conclusion, it is
my duty to say for you, that the Re
publicans entered upon their recent
political strugle for the maintenance
- of their political and civil rights, con
stituting beyond question a large ma
fjority of the lawful voters of the State.
you allied yourselves with that politi
cal party whose central and inspiring
principle has hitherto been the civil
and political freedom of all men under
1the constitution and laws of our coun
ftry. By heroic efforts and sacrifices
wbich the just verdiet of history will
rescue from the cowardly scorn now
1cast upon them by political placemen
iand traders, you secured the electoral
Svote of South Carolina for Hayes and
1Wheeler. In accomplishing this result
you became the victims of every form
of persecution and injury. From
authentic evidence it is shown that
Snot less than one hundred of your
Snumber were murdered because they
were faithful to their principles and
exercised rights solemnly guaranteed
to them by the nation. You were
denied employment, driven from your
homes, robbed of the earnings of years
of honest industry, hunted for your
lives, like wild beasts; your families
-outraged and scattered for no offence
except your peaceful and firm deter
mination to exercise your political
rights. You trusted, as you had a
right to trust, that if by such efforts
you established the lawful supremacy
of your political party in the nation,
the Government of the United States,
in the discharge of its constitutional
duty, would protect the lawful Gov
ernmient of the State from overthrow
at the hands of your political enemies.
From causes, patent to all men, and
questioned by none who regard truth,
you have been unable to overcome the
unlawful co abinations and obstacles
which ha: e opposed the practical
supremacy of the government which
your votes have established. For many
weary months you have waited for
your deliverance. While the long
struggle for the Presidency was in
progress, you were exhorted by every
representative and organ of' the Na
tional Republican party to keep your
allegiance true to that party, in order
that your deliverance from the hands
of your oppressors might be certain
and complete. Not the faintest whis
per of the possibility of disappoint
ment in these hopes and promises ever
reached you while the struggle was
To-day, April 10, 1877,by the order
of the President, whom your wntes alone
rescued from overwhelming defeat, the
Govern ment of the United State
abandons you deliberately, withdraws
from you its support, with the full
knowledge that the lawful government
of the State will be speedily over
By a new interpretation of the Con
stitution of the United States, at
variance alike with the previous prac
tice of the Government and with the
decisions of the Supreme Court, the
Executive of the United States evades
the duty of ascertaining which of two
rival State governments is the lawful
one, and by the withdrawal of troops
now protecting the State from domes
tic violence, abandons the lawful State
government to a struggle with insur
rectionary forces too powerful to be
resisted. The grounds of policy upon
which such action is defeuded, are
startling. It said that the North is
weary of the long Southern troubles.
It was weary, too, of the long troubles
which sprung from the stupendous
crime of chattel slavery, and longed
for repose. It sought to cover them
from sight by wicked compromises
with the wrong which disturbed its
their rights, they must h left to po
litical servitude. 1i this a doctrine
ever before heard in our history ? If
it shall prevail. its consiquences will
not long be confined to South Carolina
or Louisiana. It is said that a Demo
cratic House of Representatives will
refuse an appropriation for the army
of the United States if the lawful
government of South Carolina is main
tained by the military forces. Sub
mission to such coercion marks the
degeneracy of the political party or
people which endures it. A govern
ment worthy the name, a political
party fit to wield power never before
blanched at such a threat; but the
ediet has gone forth ; no arguments
or considerations which your friend
could present have sufficed to avert
the disaster. No effective means of
resistance to the consummation of the
wroug are left. The struggle can be
prolonged. My strict legal rights are
of course wholly unaffected by the
action of the President. No court of
the State has jurisdiction to pass upon
the title to my office. No lawful
Legislature can be convened except
upon my call. If the use of these
powers promised ultimbate succesi to
our cause I should not shrink from
any sacrifices which might confront we
It is a cause in which, by the light of
reason and conscience, a man might
well lay down his life; but to my wind
my present responsibility involves the
consideration of the effect of my action
upon those whose representative I am.
I have hitherto been willing to ask you
Republicans of South Carolina to risk
all dangers and endure all hardships
until relief should - come from the
Government of the United States.
That relMf will never come. I cannot
ask you to follow me further. In my
best judgment I can no longer serve you
by further resistance to the impending
calamity. With gratitude to God for
the measure of endurance with which
he has hitherto inspired me, with pro
found admiration for your matchless
fidelity to the cause in which we have
struggled, I now annougee to you and
to the people of the State that I shall
no longer actively assert my right to
the office of Governor of South Caro
lina. The motives and purposes of
the President of the United States in
the policy wliich compels we to my
present course are unquestionably hon
orable and patriotic. I devoutly pray
that events may vindicate the wisdom
of his action and that peace, justice,
freedom and prosperity may hereafter
be the portion of every citizen of,

PROSPERITY, S. C., April 9, 187'7.
MEssRS. EDITORS : It has never been a
characteristic of us to appear in public
print vindicating or setting forth in eulo
gistic strains the good traits of any people
and place. Nevertheless, we have con
cluded, after due meditation, to set forth
to the public some of the good qualities of
our place-to rebut against some, and not
a few, she is represented by some to labor
and groan under. And first, Messrs. Ed
iors, we are one of those who adhere to
that school of philosophers who advocated
that there was nothing in a name, be it
Frog Level, Frog Town, or whatever any
scientific nonmenclators may deetn, in their
unbiased judgment to christen it. Al
though our small town had the misfortune,
as some may think, of being called in her
younger days Frog Level, which is and has
beeni by some regarded as a ponder ous
load from which she never can extricate
herself, permit us to say just here, by
way of parenthesis, that we regard the
moral standard of our small place as good
as any other of its size in the State.
We admit that there was at one
time (from what we can learn) a great
many temptations to vice, but now they
are comparatively few. And the next
thing we deem it necessary to touch on
like Cortez in writing to the Emperor
Charles 5th in refer.'nce to the city of
Cholula-will bie our markets ; and we ;will
say they are well supplied with all the ne
cesaries of life. Our stores are kept by
gentlemanly proprietors and courteous
clerks, and our merchants do not have to
barter their entire stock ot merchandise
for "butter, chickens and eggs," as some
conjecture. And in point of health there
is no plaice that can show a better record.
There are no ponds to create any malaria
or miasma, an eneterg that are
said to infest our borders will have to jump
up and migrate back over to the lands of
the Pharaohs. And the next thing in or
der that we desire to touch on is the so
:iety; and here we say that our people are
not isolated hermits, dead to every gene
rous impulse of nature, destitute of moral
orth or ignorant of the rules of etiquette
ad refinement. Neither are our people
allous arnd indifferent towards education;
they are not training up their children to
e ignora:uuses. For proof of the above
e have two fine schools in the place well
ttended and a large aad flourishing Sun
day School, and also a flourishing Tfeinpe
rance Society. Hence we readily conclude
Our Washington Letter.
WASHINGTON, D. C.,
April 11, 1877.
Twen:ty years ago one Professor
Payne, of Massachusetts, proposed to
manufacture by a simple process illu
minating gas from water. The mate
rial cost nothing, the machinery was
inexpensive, and the gas was to
be immeasurably superior to any
other gas. We all remember the en
thusiastic professor. His theory was
a beautiful one, and he felt great pride
in it. The failure came only when he
attempted to reduce it to practice.
He entered his laboratory one day to
complete his experiments as fine a
specimen of manhood as there was in
New England, and full of faith. He
left it soon after through a window, a
mere wreck of a man and without a
particle of faith. The one discovered
weakness in his process was that it in
volved the immediate destruction of
the material, of the machinery and of
the manufacturer. What other dia
bolical defects may have lain hidden
under the seeming innocence of the
invention it remains for posterity to
find out; the one that appeared was
so sudden and effectual in its operation
that the Professor never looked fur
In the like manner the collapse of
our unelected- President in carrying
out the Southern portion of his policy,
promises to be sudden enough and
complete enough to prevent his devel
oping any of the other noticeable points
in it. Day by day the evidence ac
cumulates here that nearly the solid
vote of his own party is against him.
The commercial centres wish to sup
port him in the desperate fear that
business anarchy would follow further
political turmoil; but outside of such
points the indications are all the other
Most voters of the Republican party
believe in sustaining Chamberlain and
Packard, or in any other means of af
flicting the South, and in them is a
mighty foundation for an opposition.
The veteran Republican leaders have
been slighted and snubbed by Hayes,
and therein is ground enough for
their opposition. For one relying not
only upon indications from the press
ia the North. but upon information
from individuals inside and outside of
politics, I have no hesitation in saying
that in- reality Bayes has no party in
the North. While organized opposi
tion may not appear before Congress
meets in June, and then may not ex
hibit its strength for the reason that
the members of Congress were elected
before the present issue arose. It is
already apparent that at least one vital
point has been overlooked by the
President, and that, so far as party
support is concerned, he will come out
of the present experiment with far less
faith than when he went into it.
But is it likely that organized oppo
sition will await even the meeting of
Congress ? An hour of turmoil in
the State House of South Carolina or
Louisiana, would arouse a feeling
among the vast majority of Republi
cans North, that they have not known
for years. The present position of
Chamberlain, and the whole co'urse of
Packard-both able men, and both
with supporters among the most able
of Northern Republicans-show that
if anything is needed to "fire the Re
publican heart" they are ready to fur
nish it. It is certainly in theirpower
to do so.
If it is asked what the Democrats
shall do, the answer is plain. They
are an enormous miajority of the whole
people. They are well organized.
They have the House of Representa
tives. They must simply see that the
peace is kept, and that the Republican
explosion, when it comes, does no un
necessary damage to the country at
A word ought to be said in expla

$14,000,000 in the public debt in

reased. The amount of ascertained
and undenied indebtedness of the Gov
ernment in this form is very large and
is growing larger, the object being to
present a good showing of apparent
reduction. In a word that $14,000,.

in the Treasury, which should have
been paid to Government creditors,
nd thus have gone into circulation.

of Georgia and North Carolina will

The country is generally undulating,

of fertile soils. The altitude is from
2,000 to 6.000 feet above the sea level.

were, from a primeval state-its roads
and markets are just now being fully
opened, and its kind, bright, indos

to education and the labor utilities.
The productions of the country are
corn, wheat, rye, oats and barley, with
Irish potatoes, cabbages and turnips ;
also apples, pears, peaches and the
grape-all of which grow to perfec

the country for the. above, and most
especially for the apple and the vine.
The slopes of the Blue Ridge, I am
told, cannot be excelled for the grape,

still bear luxuriantly. In some sec

greater attention is paid to other

Land, lumber, labor and living are

lands or of superior location, may be

Good lumber sells at eight to nine
dollars per thousand. Rails split,
hauled and formed into fencing at
20c. per rod. Labor, generally, white
